Sue Gee's characters aren't squeaky clean but they're all the more plausible for that - I did however want to shake Gillian, the central character for her treatment of her mother when she was dying of cancer but the fact she was going through some kind of a breakdown at the time was a mitigating factor.

A wonderfully evocative and detailed read. I can't really understand why I haven't read any of this author's work One of those books I didn't want to finish for the sheer pleasure of reading it. I can't really understand why I haven't read any of this author's work before but I certainly shall be reading more in future. Jul 08, Elizabeth rated it it was amazing.

A tale of damaged people in awkward relationships told in Sue Gee's usual delicate and lyrical style. Set in Wales. I love the way Sue Gee writes about the countryside. It's like being there and she has the knack of raising a feeling of beautiful sadness in your solar plexus as you read. Five stars again. Mar 22, Annalie rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: anybody who appreciates an original story and interesting, realistic characters.

I recently reread it and found it a wonderful experience; somewhat similar to seeing old friends again after a long separation! Apparently there was some controversy when it received the "Romantic Novel of the Year" award.

It's not really a conventional love story. Shelves: own. This was so not what I thought it was going to be! This was extremely well written with an unusual plot. Definitely not your typical "romance" novel. Really liked this one, but then I was ready for something light but not fluffy light. Jan 22, Lea rated it really liked it.

The story unfolds gently and flawlessly, its style reminiscent of Kazuo Ishiguro The Remains of the Day. Phoebe, a master gardener with a no-nonsense temperament lives with her daughter Gillian, a poet on who 'falls the mantle'of her dead poet father. Gillian lives in another, sometimes rapturous world, which is at odds with the practical world of her brusque mother. Visitors from London arrive, and the story moves delicately through the seasons, as the dramas and characters unfold. Each character has a personal story, and the writing moves from one point of view to another, and the writer has achieved this difficult method seamlessly.

I loved the writing of the unspoken dialogue, the voices in the head that come from one's parents, or even somewhere else again. Gillian, awkward, without social skills, learns love, and finally receives love appreciation and friendship. She is finally contained in these relationships, in ways that are so moving I have been unable to read anything since; I have so wanted to hold this story for some time before submerging it in a new read.

Sue Gee's " The Mysteries of the Glass is one fo my favourite books. So I had to try other novels from this wonderful author. Sue Gee has a gift for conjuring scenes when it comes to describe the passing of the seasons the Christmas part is a pleasure to read. If you are searching a plot full of twists and action, you might be disappointed. But if you want to learn how the stuff of daily life can be turned into art as Philippa Gregory said about Sue Gee this is the author and you will reli Sue Gee's " The Mysteries of the Glass is one fo my favourite books.

But if you want to learn how the stuff of daily life can be turned into art as Philippa Gregory said about Sue Gee this is the author and you will relish how she describe settings, people and feelings. One of the most beautiful novels I have ever read. Gee's style of writing is similar to Iris Murdoch's. The story of a poet living in a small village on Welsh border is delicate and silent but it leaves you with a tender feeling in your heart.

The main character, Gillian Traherne, is emotionally inexperienced woman who lives with her pragmatic and cold mother. Gillian is awaken by a newcomer who stirs up her feelings and under his influence she somehow opens herself to her surroundings. Jan 14, Woollyworld rated it it was amazing. I didn't know what to expect from this book, but something made me start it! I haven't enjoyed descriptive writing like this for a long, long time, it was something really special. It had its drawbacks, but they were few and far between.

The descriptions of nature were extraordinary and often I felt like I was in Phoebe and Gillians' house. I read this to Sara. Beautifully written, so descriptive. Set on the borders of Wales. The seasons are marked by changing flowers and hedgerows and the lambing season - loved it!

This book is beautifully written and the descriptives used makes the book come alive. I loved the characters and the setting, and the interweaving individual stories. This is my first Sue Gee book, and will certainly be reading more. Jul 03, Gill rated it really liked it. The characters are haunting and at times sad. Leaves some questions unanswered but in a satisfying way. Very evocative descriptions of life on the Welsh borders.

Oct 13, Mand rated it it was amazing. Another beautifully-written and realised story by Sue Gee. Like others, I have no idea why she is not more widely-known and discussed. I discovered her a short time ago, quite by accident, and am hooked. I can hardly bear to read anyone else. Apr 13, Gilly G rated it liked it. Beautifully written with some of the best lyrical prose I've encountered in a novel.

That said I couldn't get along with most of the characters - could not engage at all with Gillian. Found the story a bit drawn out and depressing ultimately.

Feeling very conflicted about this book. Whilst I enjoyed the writing style, the deep thoughts and sensitivities of the characters and the setting I'm really glad I've finished the book.

Sleep Needs

The last third of the book became a chore. I became really irritated with the pathetic nature of Edward and Gillian I sympathised with them but didn't really relate to them. At times it felt like I was in a Thomas Hardy novel I guess this is real life Overall, I'm glad I read the book, Sue Gee does offer something excellent in her novel, well thought out, researched, detailed and a softness throughout Feb 18, Ro Hart rated it it was amazing.
